Forecasts

Eairsidh (10/3), Skinflint (4/1), Capricia (4/1), Out The Glen (6/1), Jessie Lightfoot (8/1), Leskinfere (8/1), Unblinking (12/1), Dawn Raider (14/1), Wells Gold (25/1), On The Rise (25/1), Larcadio (28/1), Spotty Dog (40/1), Message To Martha (125/1)

Verdict

The 'bounce factor' is always a slight concern on a second run after a lay-off but SKINFLINT's hurdle second last month looks a solid piece of form and he's at least as good over fences so looks sure to go well if showing up in similar form. Out The Glen is feared most after a decent first run for the Olly Murphy yard in a handicap hurdle. Unexposed chase newcomer Eairsidh is also shortlisted.

  1. SKINFLINT (IRE)
  2. OUT THE GLEN (IRE)
  3. EAIRSIDH (IRE)
